I've posted a thread about dishonest friendships; this is kind of a side issue, something that relates to my issue and that I'm interested in. Is it really possible for a heterosexual male and heterosexual female to have a close plutonic friendship?

It may be possible, but if this male and female are married to someone else, it isn't appropreate for them to do out and do things together. I was raised to avoid even the appearance of evil. When you think you are doing nothing wrong you let your guard down and that is when people get into trouble. That's just my opinion though. You probably can have platonic friendships but if you are going to be with them take your significant other with you, it's safer that way.

I believe that friendship is not gender biased at all. You are friends with people you have fun with and are comfortable around, male or female. I am in a serious relationship with my boyfriend but still have plenty of male friends. My relationship with my boyfriend is based on trust and therefore maintaining friendships with members of the oppisite sex is not a problem. If you trust yourself and your friends then a caring plutonic relationship is wonderful, no matter what the sex of those involved.

just speaking from my own experience and observances...i don't believe that men and women can have intimate platonic friendships- not the same way that women can have intimate friendships with other women and men can with other men. sex is always there one way or another- may never be a true possibility but it's there. it has taken me a long time and cost me a marriage to discover this. i have many male friends that i truly love and value their opinions and their part in my life but if i want to have a romantic relationship i can't talk intimately with other men about my problems- i can find a woman friend and do that. there is just too much risk involved with women-men friendships that can easily cross the line. i believe i can be trusted and that i can trust my partner not to cheat sexually with those relationships but there is also emotional cheating and that's a real grey area. best for me not to go there. this may be different for others but it is where i have found myself today as a result of my behavior in the past. good luck.
